As if being diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) wasn’t enough, Lizzie suffered a stroke due to a rare complication of the treatment she was receiving. With the help of the wonderful rehab team at Sanford Children’s, Lizzie fully recovered from the stroke and is now in remission, completing treatment August 12, 2015.

Lizzie still gets tired pretty easily, but she has made a wonderful recovery. Her family – mom, dad, twin sister Leah, and older brothers Ren and Jack – have hope for the future… They are thankful for the wonderful team of doctors and staff at Sanford Children’s, as well as the programs provided by Children’s Miracle Network and Cure Kids Cancer.
